Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Registering for an account at any web site almost always requires an email address, and some people like to use a secondary address they don’t really care about instead of their real email address to avoid spam. If you do this, don’t use a Hotmail (Update: or other free webmail) account. Microsoft shuts down Hotmail accounts that haven’t been logged into after nine months. So if you registered for...

Psychological Distance Increases Creativity

Psychological Distance Increases Creativity

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A new study indicates that imagining something is farther away than it is–either geographically or in time–changes the way your brain perceives it and actually increases creativity.

Apple Blocks Official Google Voice App, Pulls GV Mobile from App Store

Apple Blocks Official Google Voice App, Pulls GV Mobile from App Store

TechCrunch got this headline just right: Apple Is Growing Rotten To The Core: Official Google Voice App Blocked From App Store. The second half was originally “and It’s Likely AT&T’s Fault.” Apple’s withheld approval of the official Google Voice application and pulled the unofficial GV Mobile app on the grounds that they “duplicate iPhone functionality.” If TechCrunch is right, once the AT&T exclusive deal is done, this will likely change....

Enforced Dancing Boosts Morale and Shortens Meetings

Enforced Dancing Boosts Morale and Shortens Meetings

Writer Dominic Ali came up with an unusual way to make office meetings more bearable–one that would make Ellen proud. In the comments of my recent post about meetings, Ali says: At my previous job, I once took on a temporary acting communications director role. All of a sudden, I had eight people reporting to me. To keep impromptu meetings short, I instituted Dance Meetings. By playing some funk at low levels through my computer speakers, I’d encourage my colleagues to dance....

How Twitter Got Hacked

How Twitter Got Hacked

TechCrunch runs down step-by-step exactly how a hacker broke into Twitter employees’ accounts and gained access to over 310 confidential company documents (and generally caused them hell). Lesson to be learned: Use strong passwords (and DIFFERENT passwords for every service you use), change them often, and use impossible-to-guess secret questions and answers. I recommend (and use) KeePass for helping you do just this. Continua a leggere – Original Link: How Twitter Got Hacked Technorati...

How to SMS with Google Voice from Any Mobile Phone

How to SMS with Google Voice from Any Mobile Phone

Just because you don’t have an Android phone or BlackBerry doesn’t mean you can’t text from your cellphone using your Google Voice number. If you’ve gotten an invite to Google Voice and you’re an iPhone or non-smartphone user, you might be disappointed about not having clear access to the texting feature. However, you CAN use Google Voice SMS capabilities on any phone. Even if you do have an Android phone or BlackBerry, you can use this method to use the native...

Better Gmail 2 Updated for Gmail’s Label Enhancements

Better Gmail 2 Updated for Gmail’s Label Enhancements

Google’s recent improvements to Gmail’s labels broke one of Better Gmail 2’s most-loved features: Folders4Gmail. Folders4Gmail displays labels with slashes in them as subfolders of a parent label, and I must say, I’ve missed it a whole lot this week. Luckily, rockstar userscripter Arend v. Reinersdorff updated Folders4Gmail to work with Gmail’s new drag-and-drop, hide-and-show label mechanism, and I just posted his new version in the extension. Grab the newest...

When Social Networking Becomes Self-Incrimination

When Social Networking Becomes Self-Incrimination

What I love most about my friend Penelope Trunk’s Twitter feed (and all her writing) is that it’s raw, personal, and hilarious. But I imagine getting served with legal documents that involve a printout of it wasn’t so hilarious.

It’s iPhone 3GS Release Day

It’s iPhone 3GS Release Day

Jason Chen’s excellent review of the iPhone 3GS banished any doubt from my mind that Apple wasn’t kidding about that S: it does stand for capital-S Speed. (Just watch those side-by-side video clips.) But, for a whole lot of folks, the S does NOT stand for savings. As for me, I’m sticking with my HTC G1 running Android. It still has a better native Gmail client than iPhone 3.0. (But I’m not bitter about all that speed or anything.) Continua a leggere – Original...

System Update: Gravatars and Facebook Pics Now Showing

After six months almost 1,000 readers have registered for a commenter account here at Smarterware, either using Facebook Connect, OpenID, or just by creating an account. Obviously SW readers are the best-looking commenters on the internet, so it’s about time we see each other’s faces. After a little WordPress hacking, I’ve added Facebook profile pictures and Gravatar support to comments and user profiles, plus a few other tweaks that help you get to know your fellow...
